The Laurels is committed to effective communication during this unprecedented time in our history. We regularly apprise guests, families, and associates to changes in facility status and policy as needed and as deemed appropriate.

We have been humbled by the support we’ve received from the local community and we truly appreciate everyone’s continued cooperation and understanding. For more information and resources regarding COVID-19, see the COVID-19 Resources page.

The Laurels of Sandy Creek

A Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center

The Laurels of Sandy Creek is a modern, 87-bed skilled nursing and rehabilitation center located in peaceful Wayland, Michigan, between Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo. Our Maplewood of Sandy Creek has 20 assisted living studio apartments on the same campus.

Our experienced and longstanding staff offers the finest in comprehensive health care to all our guests, whether they are with us for short-term respite, rehabilitation or hospice care or have chosen an extended stay.

Our own licensed therapists craft individualized short-term rehab programs in consultation with each guest’s doctor to speed the transition from hospital to home.

Guests who are staying with us for an extended period find we have everything they need to continue enjoying the benefits of homes. We offer delicious home-style meals; daily activities that allow you to continue learning and doing; and events that ensure you’ll celebrate special occasions with your family just as you always have. And because we are connected to Maplewood of Sandy Creek, an assisted living facility, we can offer a complete continuum of care if you need it.

We offer all this in light of our unique philosophy, The Laurel Way of Caring, which means our dedicated staff will always extend to you the dignity, respect, companionship and compassion we believe you deserve.

Short-Term Rehab
Short-Term Care

We provide a complete range of services for patients that are unable to return home after a hospitalization. Our programs provide a safe transition from hospital to home with a depth of services that typically can not be provided through home health care or by family members.

Long-Term Care

Extended and long-term care stays are appropriate for individuals that require greater levels of care and support than can be provided at home or within an independent living setting. Our guests typically need assistance with their daily activities due to physical and/or cognitive limitations.

Respite Care

Short-term respite stays offer a family or caregiver a short-term reprieve from the demands of around-the-clock care. Our twenty-four hour nursing care at our skilled nursing facilities assures that all medications are taken on time and any necessary medical treatments are provided.

"When I came to The Laurels of Sandy Creek, I was very weak. The therapists are very good at what they do. I now have my muscle tone back and have been able to return home. The Laurels of Sandy Creek saved my life!"


The Laurels treats you like you are a 'mother' or 'grandmother'."


"The Laurels has been a great experience for me! I was nervous about having to come for therapy, but the therapy department has been wonderful to me. The staff is so friendly, caring and truly wants the best for you. There were many days that I just wanted to give up because it was too hard but they kept me going! I was unable to walk on my own where I arrived and within 3 weeks, I am scheduled to "walk" out of here to return home."
